INN : You are performing in bigger and bigger places and now abroad, how do you live this growing popularity compared to your debut? It's true that we are performing in bigger and bigger places, but wat's important to us is to have kept proximity whith our fans and that we and that together we continue to have fun. INN : Europe is receiving many idol groups. Would you like to perform in another European country for your next visit? (Rires) Yes! We want to go to France On veut aller en France! INN : Since your debut, and maybe even more after Hayami Akari's departure, Momoiro Clover Z is refering to sentaï. Are you fan of it ? (Do you think there is a link between idols and sentaï ?) (Laughs) It's funny but no, we are not big fans of it. NNevertheless, we believe that team spirit is an important thing, somehow the idols are the kinds of sentai. INN : Some of your songs have been used for anime's endings, are you fan of anime or manga ? If yes, which one ? Shiori : My favourite anime are Chibi Maruko-chan, Doraemon. Reni : K-on! and Negima!

INN : Japan experienced a major disaster in last March, we Europeans were surprised to see how the Japanese have kept their calm and above all, have continued to move forward. What kind of role can have Idols , in this situation? Kanako : It was a difficult moment, but we thought that bringing energy and joy was the best thing to do. (Reni shows hers biceps to Shiori who touches it). Shiori : yes, we have a lot of energy! (Laughs).
